Different topics, formats, and media require different kinds of indexing to make information accessible. Indexes like those that appear in printed books or in special issues of journals also serve an important role for quick browsing and assessment of contents.

This group is open to all members of the Research Cooperative. Please give us your advice and questions on any aspect of indexing here. Use the message box below (messages will be forwarded to all members of the group; add keyword tags to make it easier for others to find your message).

Offers and requests for indexing help can also be posted here, as well as in the open forums for indexing offers and indexing requests.
